Chapter 4. Installation and Hardware Configuration

This chapter will detail the procedures needed to install Red Hat 6.1 onto an Intel system; the procedures are similar whether you choose to install using either GUI- or text-based installation. Since much of this information is already well documented in the Red Hat User's Guide (provided as a paper manual in the "Official" boxed sets, included in the ``/doc'' directory on the CD, as well as available online at, I've skimmed over much of the details. However, there are a few things which I think are lacking in the Red Hat guide, and therefore I will attempt to cover those items in greater detail.
